Q. At what age do you introduce Honest Kitchen to your litters of pups?
Cindy, I am currently feeding Honest Kitchen to my adult dogs and recently contacted the company to ask what age I could begin feeding our puppies. I believe the gal I talked to was Kat and she suggested that I ask another breeder that was using the products with their puppies. Can you give me any suggestions in regards to when to introduce the Honest Kitchen and any other information you think may be helpful. I just ran accross your website for the first time and will definitely mark it as a favorite! We breed Rottweilers and currently feed Orijen to our dogs, as well as Honest Kitchen. I love the food and the dogs do so well with it! I am looking forward to any suggestions you may have for me. Thank you so much.

A. Usually anytime after about 4-5 weeks you can start adding small amounts of rehydrated HK to whatever you are weaning the pups onto. We start using our bottle feeding formula in a shallow pan, then we add ground meat and eventually a variety of different ingredients (like HK). I'd refer you to our bottle feeding page, scroll part way down to see the weaning process (about 1/3 of the page). We also have a question & answer section on Honest Kitchen. I hope this helps!

I use this in my own kennel. My dogs love it. I have dogs that will spit a gell cap out. These same dogs love this salmon oil. It's an excellent all-natural source of Omega3 and Omega 6. It's easier than capsules for a puppy to swallow. Freezing of Salmon Oil is not recommended. Salmon Oil should be used within 3 months of opening a bottle.

Feeding tube is 16 inches long (41cm) and approximately 3/32 inches (2.7mm) outside diameter. It is best to store your feeding tube and syringe at normal room temperature. In colder temperatures the feeding tube will become rigid and stiff. At body temperature, the tube becomes softer, resilient, and completely flexible. Syringe is 35cc and attaches to the integral funnel end of the feeding tube. The opposite end of the feeding tube has a closed rounded tip with 2 side port 'eyes'.
